In conjunction with the Newark Public Library exhibition, Newark Art and Artists: Prints, Photographs, and Other Works on Paper from the Special Collections of the Newark Public Library (Part II) the Paul Robeson Galleries and Newark Public Library will be hosting a free Portfolio Review and Art Resource Fair.
The portfolio review offers artists the opportunity to have their work reviewed by one of four distinguished curators:
- Mary Birmingham, Curator, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey;
- Kevin Darmanie, Founder/Director, Kedar Studio of Art;
- Evonne Davis, Artistic Director, Gallery Aferro
- Adrienne Wheeler, Owner, Adrienne Wheeler Gallery.
In addition to these curators, review participants and other visitors will have an opportunity to meet representatives from a broad range of art organizations, and discover new places to show art, see art, sell art, and create art in Newark.
While there is no fee to participate, artists interested in having their portfolios reviewed are encouraged to reserve a review slot in advance.
